5 WAYS TO CHECK IF YOUR MOVING COMPANY IS REPUTABLE
When planning a move, it’s extremely important to make sure that your moving company is trustworthy. You’re allowing strangers to enter your house or business and entrusting them to move valuable items. You also want to avoid overpaying for their services or incurring additional charges that weren’t in the original moving quote. Even the most organized move can be stressful, so you don’t want to add to your load. Here are five pointers that will help give you some peace of mind.
Ask people you know for recommendations and check reviews and testimonials online. All Jersey Moving & Storage is one of only about 15 movers in New Jersey to be granted the "Circle of Excellence" designation by the New Jersey Warehousemens & Movers Association. We’re also endorsed by the Better Business Bureau and Angie’s List.
Be sure to find out how long your movers have been in business – we’ve been serving the community since 1992.
Using a moving company that's very familiar with the area adds an extra layer of security and ensures a speedier move. All Jersey Moving & Storage specializes in expedited service on long distance moves within a 500-mile radius, up and down the East Coast including all points between Maine and the Carolinas.
Get Written Estimates
A professional moving company will provide you with an itemized inventory and stand by their moving quote. For commercial clients, All Jersey Moving & Storage offers free on-site estimates to ensure that our moving quotes are accurate and to discuss any special instructions or packing requirements. Unlike many moving companies, we’ve handled numerous business moves and have the specialized knowledge, equipment and employees they require.
Avoid Charges by the Cubic Foot
Legitimate movers do not charge by the cubic foot. This is basically space reservation on a truck and means if you use more space, you’re charged more. It’s a very easy tactic for the unscrupulous mover to employ to their advantage. Using a professional moving company like All Jersey Moving & Storage means you don’t have to know or worry about these practices.
Ask About Personnel
Find out how many employees the company has, whether they use casual or pick-up labor and what training is provided. All Jersey Moving & Storage knows that our success and reputation rests on the quality of our employees. Whether part-time or full-time, our staff receive on-going training in proper moving and safety procedures and packing techniques. We use late-model equipment to protect our valued workers and your precious cargo.
When the truck arrives at your new home or office to unload your possessions, you'll see the same friendly crew that loaded them. This is not the norm with many low-cost movers.
For long distance moves, most major van lines offer a 2-18 day delivery window. This means that your possessions could be combined with another load or be transferred to another truck en route. All Jersey Moving & Storage specializes in direct service but we don’t charge a premium for this convenience.
Inquire if your mover charges extra for weekend pick-up and delivery – we don’t! Once again, we believe that providing transparency and superior service is more profitable than passing on unexpected costs to unwitting customers. Contact us now for a free no obligation moving quote.
